Prisoners of the Sun (Part 2 of 2)
6 April 2007 | by (the Mad Hatter's tea party.) – See all my reviews

So after saving Zorrino, the group head back on the trail of the Temple of the Sun and along the journey encounter many facets lurking in the jungle. During a crossing near a waterfall, Tintin falls into the back of the water fall and discovers an ancient tomb of the Incas. He calls upon Haddock and Zorrino to budge open a door, where they stumble across a ceremony held by Incans. They are sentenced for death for sacrilege, but Zorrino is saved because Tintin gave him the medallion, which turned the man you gave it to Tintin was actually Incan high priest. Although, they are allowed to choose when this sacrifice shall happen, and through an old newspaper Haddock had, he makes it when an eclipse will occur. This could be used to show how the sun god doesn't want them killed and follows Tintin's command. So when this happens, naturally the Incan King agrees to terms with Tintin of releasing the curse that plagues the seven scientists, if Tintin undoes he command.

"Prisoners of the Sun" is writer and illustrator Herge's fourteenth comic strip album of "The Adventures of Tintin" and the sixth episode (part 2 of 2) of Season 3. What goes on this half is basically the end journey with Haddock getting close and personal with many of the wildlife, as there's a real importance shown on the backdrop. The most memorable scene would be that of a Condor taking Snowy. When the Incans show up, you can see it's all a about the story's major climax and it builds up to it smartly, though not accurately to reality. During these scenes it paints a rather eerie picture and the score has an other worldly ring to it when focusing on the ancient rubble and richly characterised culture. Some things that do happen, are a tad too convenient, but who can go along with it easily. This ride is a largely orientated one with the Thompsons finding themselves basically everywhere around the globe by using Calculus pendulum to find him. These little effective moments work a treat and provide a nice sense of irony that works. Another amusing note is that Calculus believes all of this to be part of a movie he's in. Haddock is extremely flushed with aggression for this adventure, but with what he goes through, there's no wonder why. Well he does find time to dance and sing, and get the final word. This spellbinding foray is a fitting closure to the story
